This consultation has now closed.

The government is consulting on how it plans to ban so-called ‘conversion therapy’ practices, which particularly affect LGBT+ people. This consultation will be open for 6 weeks, closing on Friday 10 December at 11:45pm.

The consultation seeks views on a package of proposed measures that will apply to England and Wales.

The consultation is being run by the Government Equalities Office and the Equality Hub. Please email if you have any enquiries specifically relating to the conversion therapy consultation.

If you have questions relating to the wider policies of the Equality Hub, please email
